This year’s gift from me to you isn’t fancy and it doesn’t come wrapped up in a big box! Last year, I was unable to do much because I was nursing a shoulder that had just been replaced. So, to those who helped me out, I say THANK YOU and and EXTRA MERRY CHRISTMAS! But, this ‘gift’ comes with mixed blessings:
First the good. We are blessed to live in an area of the country where the scenery is more than beautiful; we’ve had our share of weekend get aways. You know the kind where you throw the dog in the car, pack a light bag and take off for parts unknown!
I forget about any stress I may be under when I’m in the beauty of Colorado or any other place. That’s how I ‘de-stress.’
Now, for the mixed blessings part; mixed blessings imply some good and some bad. The good I spoke of last paragraph. Now, I’ll allude to the bad. I’d be ‘joshing you’ if I said I wasn’t wistful when my husband and dog were able to get out of the car and run, and my joints and lungs required that I stay in the car; I’ll try my darndest to change this, but after 13 years, I’m not terribly optimistic. However, the scenery is so beautiful, it was just the the tonic the Dr.ordered. I was still able to take some wonderful photos from the car (you thought Rey took them all?)
So, drowning myself in this beauty is one way in which I de-stress and contribute to my wellness. I’m sure we all have our own de-stressors; if not, that may be a New Year’s Resolution; NOT to think about doing; but TO DO!
